Funny you asked! I just got this receiver today, and its the first problem i had. Its the speaker wiring quality. I had thicker better quality wires in center channel speaker and audio was fine. Cheaper thinner on front and kept cutting out on 3 or 4 voulume level. I switched wires just to test and it never cut out again. Audio was fine.Try better thicker wires and u should b alright.

This can be related to a fault in the potentiometer as it cut off the tracking of the voltage and gets back to feed the digital circuit. You need to check, sometimes a switch cleaning oil can help. Try to wriggle the pot control many times as it can help, if not replace.
Possible that there is fault in the preamp analogue/logic control. When you touch the volume control knob the static from you partially injects the circuit to work and thereby conduct to produce the volume. The volume controller is an analogue rheostat coupled to a circuit that can be the suspect , it can even be a fault- open circuit- of the controller. You can remove the top cover after disconnecting the power supply and check behind the volume knob for the circuit. If you are able to test this circuit , it will confirm the case.
The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.
Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.
There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.
Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.
somewhere on that player is a switch for 78-45-33 rpm the speed switch look up around by the tone arm above by where the record goes, it may not be on the front. switch it to the correct record you have 45's are small. 78's are medium and 33rpms are the big records..
In short, no. if you look closely you will see the Teac 3340 has a much larger/thicker capstan shaft than other Teac reel decks. This feature allows the faster tape speeds...7 1/2 and 15 ips. In order to slow down the Teac 3340 you would have to change the flywheel to one from another deck that was made to run at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2. Which is possible but some work..plus you would have to find a slower speed flywheel from another Teac deck. Also to maintain performance, the bias and Eq positions for the slower speeds would have to be readjusted from 7 1/2 and 15.
Probably you want to convert it to 220 volt. Simple, go to mechanic who will take out Transformer and easily convert it to 220, I got it done myself as well, AM/FM will work properly being analogue tuning.
